InfoBluePrint Data Management Training Courses - “How to Implement Practical Data Quality Management”
By: Di Joseph   (2017-07-03)

As you know we all use lots of water and some of us in the Cape are suffering from the severe drought! But what state does water have to be in to be usable? Well it depends on the purpose for which it is being used. E.g. drinking the water, watering the garden.

In order to make the water fit for its intended purpose:

  • Firstly, we understand the ‘risks’ of using water that is not fit for its purpose.
  • Then we determine ‘what’ contaminants the water contains; we assess the state of the water.
  • Then we determine ‘how’ we are going to use the water, ‘how’ to purify the water and we purify it.
  • Finally, we determine the root causes of ‘why’ the water is contaminated and implement preventative actions.

And the same applies to Data. Data has to be ‘fit for the purposes’ for which it is being used.

In order to make the data ‘fit for purpose’:

  • Firstly, we understand the ‘risks’ of using data that is not ‘fit for purpose’.
  • Then we determine the state of the data in terms of the rules that should apply to it; we assess the state of the data.
  • Then we determine ‘how’ we are going to use the data, ‘how’ to cleanse the data and we cleanse it.
  • Finally, we determine the root causes of ‘why’ the data does not comply with the rules and implement preventative actions.
